Batkid Begins Documentary + Interview with the Filmmaker

Batkid Begins Film + Interview with Dana Nachman

One of the most memorable experiences I’ve had so far since moving to San Francisco was Batkid day, November 15, 2013. Even if you weren’t in San Francisco, chances are you heard about little Miles Scott and his quest to save the city. Even though I was at work at the children’s hospital on the actual day, I remember hearing about the outpouring of support for 5-year-old Miles Scott as Make-A-Wish, the citizens of San Francisco and more than a billion people all over the world (even President Obama and astronauts from the International Space Station!) watched him become a superhero for a day. It was enough to bring tears to my eyes! … Read More »

Black Cherry Buttermilk Ice Cream

Black Cherry Buttermilk Ice CreamHow was your weekend friends? I had to work all weekend, but that didn’t stop me from making and enjoying the black cherry buttermilk ice cream recipe! I hope you have a great week.

Black Cherry Buttermilk Ice CreamMy recipe for peach swirl buttermilk ice cream is one of my favorites. It’s right up there with salted caramel ice cream and tiramisu ice cream. I love the buttermilk ice cream base because it’s tangy and refreshing in a really unexpected way. Cherries are in peak season right now and I just knew that black cherries would also go great with a buttermilk base. My hunch was correct and the recipe has exceeded my expectations. It is so, so good – perfectly sweet and rich while not being overwhelming. I recommend you don’t waste any time and try it for yourself immediately!… Read More »

Painted Wooden Coasters

Painted Wooden CoastersOh my goodness, Pat and I just got back from an amazing weekend in Napa at the Festival del Sole. I spent last week on night shift, which means we basically go the entire week on opposite schedules. After a week of barely seeing each other, it was so nice to reconnect. The festival was lovely! We had a full day of events starting with yoga, then taste of Napa and a beautiful concert followed by more food and wine. I can’t wait to share my photos with you! Our friends Sarah and Lucas also joined us. Hooray for wine country and friends!… Read More »

Heirloom Tomato Tart Tatin

Heirloom Tomato Tart Tatin RecipeOne of the comments I get about being a pediatrician is, “I love kids, but I could never deal with the families!” Most of the time working with my patients’ families is one of the best parts of my job. Almost universally, parents really want to do what is best for their kids. They are such an important part of the healthcare team. There are so many times a mother has said, “he just doesn’t seem like himself” and it turns out their inkling is completely correct. Parental instinct is just as good as many of the lab tests that we use!
